Dear Victoriana, Just to let you know that I have received my tree (yesterday) It was left outside on my patio. I did not hear the courier ring the bell, so you will have no signature. My sister in Wales received hers a few days earlier. When I unwrapped it I thought you had decorated it for me, with all the shredded pieces of paper! What a good idea. We are both very pleased with the quality and packaging. Also the large buds already on them. We will both definitely shop with you again. Thank you so much. Kind regards,
June Chadwick, Seaton, Devon
If you're looking for something a little different to add to your kitchen garden, then we heartily recommend that you consider a Medlar tree.
The Medlar is a completely underrated fruit tree in our opinion - providing tart Medlar fruits that need to undergo the process of bletting (maturing, softening and fermenting) before they can be eaten raw. Medlars are a fantastic addition to preserves and we can't understand why they're not more readily available!
A hugely underrated variety of fruit that has a sublime apple-pear sauce flavour and texture. Self Fertile. Quince A rootstock.
Available from approximately mid November 2014
Supplied as a bare root tree pruned to approximately 4 - 5 feet (1.2 - 1.5 metres) tall including roots.
